Skin Care/ Pamper Routine

Hello Lovelies, 
I hope you are all well. It's been a busy few weeks for me and Anthony, if you follow me on instagram you will know that I was a bridesmaid at Anthony's brothers wedding. 
I have also been back at work whilst Anthony is still off recovering. Although the reason that he is not at work is not nice I am enjoying having him around more, we have been able to visit a few places together when I have a day off. Separate post coming up about that. 
Recently I have been trying to look after my skin. my everyday routine usually consists of the Garnier Micellar cleansing water and Lancome Hydra Zen Moisturizer. This evening as I had a bit more time to relax I decided to pamper my skin with a combination of my favourites at the moment.   

  1. Garnier Micellar cleansing water
 2. Soap & Glory The Fab Pore 2 in 1 mask 
 3. Soap & Glory You Won't Believe Your Eyes
 4. Boots Baby large cotton pads
 5. Cussons Mum & Me bump stretch mark cream 
The first step of my routine was to take off any make up using the Garnier Micellar Water, I love this as it removes make up so easily and you hardy need any on the cotton pad.
I have been using these larger ones from the baby section in boots as I find that I can use just one to remove my make up .
 The Fab Pore mask has been one of my go to masks for a while (I think I have mentioned it in a previous blog post). This was a fresh new pot ooo a part of me did not want to ruin the newness haha.
 I took a big blob of this on my fingers and massaged onto my face, this mask has small beads in "Rice Microbeads" that exfoliate the skin and leave it feeling really smooth and soft so make sure that you massage these in really well for the full effect.  
 Another ingredient in the mask prevents spots and clears pores, I fell that my skin really needs this at them moment as I have a few hormonal breakouts. The mask also smells really refreshing with a minty fragrance. 
Ahhhh here is my face covered in the mask, I wasn't going to put this on the internet so I do apologise if this gives you a fright. 
Anthony came upstairs to see what I was doing, safe to say he was a little surprised when I turned around looking like this!!

I left the mask on for 15 minutes, I had to set a timer because otherwise I would have forgotten what time I put it on. 

After the 15 minutes I removed with a cotton pad and warm water. 

After removing the mask I moisturised with the Lancome Hydra Zen Neurocalm moisturiser. I have been using this for a few weeks now, mainly at night, and my skin feels super soft. 

This is a sample size that I got from the counter when I bought my foundation and blusher. I think once I have used this up I will be purchasing a pot. 

The cream smells lovely, I find it very relaxing to use on my skin at night time. The scents which are     used are anti-stress and calming. There is more        information about this here.

Under my eyes I then use the Soap and Glory You Won't Believe Your Eyes.  This eye cream has a roller ball applicator and is so soothing on tired eyes. I use it in the day as well as it has light reflecting particles to lighten my tired mummy to be eye bags,  

 Speaking of mummy to be this brings me to my final skin care product which is the Cussons mum & me bump stretch mark cream. Obviously I don't use this on my face but it just finishes the skin care well. I'm not 100% sure that any stretch mark cream or oil works but it's worth a try I suppose. 
I find this cooling especially with the hot nights we have been having in Britain recently.  


What are your favourite skin care products/ mummy to be products? please let me know as I would love to try some of your recommendations.
